Gastric Bypass is This Century’s Lobotomy

Monday, March 7th, 2011 by Melissa Barnes

One day we will look back at bariatric surgeries such as gastric bypass with the same horror and disbelief that we now look back on the lobotomy.

Don’t believe me? Now discredited, the lobotomy was once held in the same high regard by medical doctors. The inventor even received a Nobel Prize for creating the lobotomy. In its heyday in the 40′s and 50′s, doctors in the US performed an estimated 40,000, more than any other nation. Marketed heavily, people even asked for a lobotomy to cure their depression, anxiety, and fears. Sadly, some were even occasionally done to reform defiant children or subdue political dissidents. All without any research or evidence as to the long term effects. Thankfully, the procedure fell out of favor as doctors wised up to the fact that slicing into the brain in order to improve a patient’s behavior was a drastic, permanent, and irreversible solution that often caused more harm than good. But too late for the thousands who had been guinea pigs for this dangerous experiment, including famously Rosemary Kennedy whose lobotomy at age 23 left her a vegetable for the rest of her life.

Fast forward to today, and we find that surgically removing part of the stomach and intestines is the new fad cure for weight gain. What was once the last resort for those whose morbid obesity had become life threatening has now become the easy solution for anyone who’s ever struggled to lose weight.

Did you realize that gastric bypass kills 5% of patients within the first year after surgery? That’s 1 out of 20. Do you really want to take that risk if you could get results some other way?

Doctors are also finding that gastric bypass can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). It only makes sense that if you remove part of the digestive system, then the pancreas, which is doing its proper job and releasing the proper amount of insulin for the stomach you should have, is now releasing too much insulin for the smaller stomach surgery has left you. So the suggested solution for these patients…? That’s right: surgically removing part of the pancreas.

What other problems will be linked to gastric bypass as time goes on? What long term health problems will these patients suffer from as they age? Who knows? The most commonly performed gastric bypass procedure was first done in 1993. It took 40 years for medicine to rethink its position on the lobotomy.

A simplier, less risky solution to weight problems… lifestyle changes. And if you need help motivating yourself to stick to your plan, hypnosis can help. Most importantly, hypnosis is noninvasive, safe, and has no side effects. Phone us at (716) 874-9050 to schedule your free screening today, and discover if hypnosis just might be the safer alternative for you too.

So Christmas is almost here and another year has passed…

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010 by Robert Saviola

Remember last year how you said you were going to lose the weight. You told others that you were fed up. You were tired of going places wearing sweatpants. You haven’t tucked your shirt in for years. But here you are still struggling with the weight.

By allowing yourself to suffer with too much extra weight, you not only disrespect yourself, but you are also disrespecting your spouse, your children, and most of all God.

Why have you been suffering for so long? Some people just ignore the weight. They dissociate from their bodies by distracting themselves with daily activities. The only time they realize they have a problem is when they pass by a mirror, dress for a party or important event, or purchase new clothes. It is at these times that the pain of the excess weight kicks in. Once these times pass, they go back to ignoring the problem.

Some people feel that they were destined to be fat, that there is a fat gene because others in their family are fat. Allow me pose this question to you: Were there any fat people in the World War II concentration camps? The answer is no. Not one person imprisoned there was heavy. It’s not your genes.

Being overweight is a mental state. Mental state dictates physical state. It is that simple. Dietitians and nutritionists know how to eat properly, but many of them are overweight. Why are they overweight? Because weight loss has more to do with mental state than it has to do with food. People who undergo gastric bypass surgery will eventually stretch their stomachs back to regain the weight. Why? Because the surgery has nothing to do with changing the person’s mental state. The surgery changed only the physical state. In other words, the surgery addressed the symptom, not the cause. Hypnosis addresses the cause, not the symptom. This is why there are thousands of people who have gone through our method of hypnosis weight loss programs successfully and have kept the weight off.

We will give you 30-40 minutes privately with one of our highly experienced staff. Who knew weight loss could be so enjoyable? Just read our client testimonials and find out for yourself. Or suffer through another year of excess weight and the pain it causes. The choice is yours.
